Grilled Flank Steak Tacos

Grilled Flank Steak Tacos

While many folks have been jumping on the taco bandwagon the last few years, we’ve been on it since birth. San Diego. Mexican Food. Cheap. Need we say more? Of course the tacos from our youth pale in comparison to today’s fancy offerings. From kimchee to pork belly to tofu chefs are always testing out new flavors.

Call us plain but we prefer good old fashion Carne Asada, Pollo Asado Tacos using Pollo Asado, Birria Tacos using Birria or Street Tacos. These tacos hit the spot and bring us back to when we’d stay out riding bikes until the sun went down. Now don’t get us wrong. There’s a time and place for an asian themed taco or pork belly taco. They just don’t have a spot on our “go to” weekly menu like these Steak Tacos do.

You could also use Bavette Steak to make these flank steak tacos.

Now kick back with a margarita using our homemade margarita mix and chow down on a few of these beasts.
